    So I feel very thick. Just upgraded with the Universal (rev D) patch.. and although I had never tried before, running in a window seemed like a good idea... but I can't find the option in any of the options in the Sims 2 game... they keep talking about the options dialog which makes me feel like I should be running some other app...

    So... how do I run sims 2 rev D in windowed mode... WHAT options dialog has the option in????

    ARgh I deserve to rot.

    Hold down the option key while launching and you will get a dialog box with options such as full-screen/window mode, resolution, and optimized rendering mode.

    Fantastic! Now... Is that a general Mac thing, is it in the Manual... how did I miss it??

    Thank you very very much!

    This post came up when I searched on google, so I thought I might add to it..

    For me it seems to be command you hold down, not option, to get the box where you can choose windowed mode.
    You have to be double-clicking the Sims 2 icon in a window or the desktop, it won't work straight from the dock.
    I found this information in the readme that came in the game folder, under the section titled "Options Dialog".
